MAC Girl Next Door Lipstick
MAC Girl Next Door Lipstick

MAC Girl Next Door Lipstick ($16.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “vivid blue pink” with a Lustre finish. It’s a light-medium pink with blue undertones and white shimmer. Revlon Cupcake is pinker, not as white-based. MAC Love Long Distance is a darker pink with bluer undertones. MAC Annemiek is lighter, less pink. Chanel Candeur is a touch lighter. Guerlain Rose Innocent is also similar.

Being a Lustre finish, it is a sheerer shade; it yielded semi-sheer color payoff with a general translucency that enabled the natural lip color to come through. This lightened my natural lip color while boosting the natural pink tones.  I don’t have great experiences with Lustres, because they tend to be less forgiving on lips when applied (they seem to emphasize lip texture) and they can be drying when worn.  Girl Next Door applied decently and didn’t settle into lip lines, but it was a bit drying for the two and a half hours it lasted on my lips (the average non-long-wearing lipstick lasts around four hours on me).  The consistency was a little thin, so it pulled a touch when I applied it.

    looks like pink popcorn, really pretty in the tube but when its on not so pretty. Glad I saw this first!

    Hi Christine,

    I love your reviews. I was trying to search for eye shadow palettes that you’ve rated highly. Is there a way to do this? If I search by eye products, I get too many products (good and bad) and if I search by rating then I get all types of products.

    Pretty! I’ve been looking for a color like this for some time, but would you recommend it for really light and cool skin tones? I always go for pinks over corals but I’m having a hard time deciding between this one and “Betty Bright”!

    • If you’re pale and have cool tones, this is definitely a color that tends to work for you :)

      • Kiki1988

        Ok thanks for the advice! As much as I love “Betty Bright”, I think it might be a bit too bright for me because I am so pale :( but I trust your judgement on this one! Also, I know you get a lot of these comments but thank you for your thorough and quick reviews! Really makes being a beauty addict with a budget much easier :)

    I’m totally going to get this. In a way, it reminds me of Stroke of Lust, not necessarily because of the colour (it’s been so long I don’t quite remember what it was like!), but because nobody liked Stroke of Lust and yet I LOVED it so much.

  5. Carrie Ann

    Ooh, I actually really like this. It looks very subtle and pretty.

  6. Nicoco Chanel

    Ohhh I like this but I think my lips are too pigmented to have it really show. Boo. I might look at cupcake instead…

  7. Shayna

    I bought this lipstick! I think it looks like it’ll be great for layering.

  8. Pamela

    I ordered this one and am glad I did! I think it will look great on me being that I am fair and cool toned. Thanks for the review.

  9. Lucy

    Thanks for all your hard work :)
    Do you think there’d be any point buying this lipstick if I already have pink popcorn (reel sexy) and beauty (glamourdaze) lipsticks?

    • If you use Pink Popcorn a lot, yes!

      • Sydney

        I’m so glad to hear this. I love pink popcorn, it’s one of my favorites. I just love the sheer color. I ordered Girl Next Door without a second thought and then was worried it would be too opaque and make me look washed out- However, I love it. Thanks so much for all the great reviews!

  10. Lolly

    This has to be the most perfect color (in the tube)!

  11. Jacqui

    Christine, how does this compare to Viva Glam lady gaga? When I saw this , it reminded me of gaga, and snob.thanks for all your hard work, I’ve been waiting since July for this collection :)

  12. Adhishree

    this is beautiful on you! a sheer finish with milky colours like these looks so much better as compared to something as opaque as say, pink nouveau or saint germain.

  13. D

    Hi Christine,
    What liner would you use with this? I’m thinking Cork or Chestnut for me.

  14. I’m going to try this one! I still haven’t found the perfect pink yet that isn’t limited. Mac Aloof was my favorite of all time. I wish they would release it again :)

  15. Meghan

    How would you compare it to Snob or Angel?!

  16. Alyssa

    For anyone on the fence about buying this because it seems to sheer….I wore it today and it is buildable to a more opaque pink. It’s a fun color to wear!

  17. Fiona

    How would you compare this to Saint Germain? x

  18. Diane

    Hi Christine! Because of your review on ysl rouge volupte-I also bought the YSL lingerie pink and i love it! my skintone NC15-nc20 warm, do you think this will work on me? will be this (girl next door) too lilac on me? will it be look familiar with my lingerie pink, creme cup? i have a lustre finish in cut a caper, so far i like the coverage. Thanks so much Christine! Hope to hear from you.
